Buy of the Week AU

Jacob’s Creek Barossa Signature Chardonnay 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $20

Thoughts don’t immediately turn to the Barossa for chardonnay, but this is a very passable effort and is well-priced. The peach and toasted nut aromas are quite overt and showing some early development, while the palate is full, rounded and generously flavoured. (Screwcap)
